Hi, yesterday I helped my brother installing Winxp with sp1 integrated. I updatet once, restarted and started updating again. This time it says that windowsupdate was unable to install the components i've selected. I also tried to update it to sp2, but the same message appears.
Is there no other option other then downloading all the security updates or installing sp2?

Was this a burned CD with SP1 Integrated into it or a Microsoft Windows XP CD that you used?

It was burned with sp1 integrated, I installed all the security upgrades for him by downloading each from microsofts page.
The strang thing now is that windowsupdate doesn't find the other alternate upgrades (movie maker 2, direcX 9.0c +++)
